My late model A is leaking engine oil from the front of the fan shaft right behind the belt pulley. Im wondering if there is supposed to be a lot of oil in the shaft housing. I know there is a felt seal behind pulley. Any help would be appreciated.

Have you fixed this problem yet?

I just rebuilt 2 of these. Deere sometimes used the inside of the fan shaft to carry the oil vapors back to the intake. On others there is an additional tube that does the same thing. If yours is the first type, there can be oil if enough pressure builds up in the engine and blows enough oil up there along with the vapors..

However, my first thought is that your bearing is heating up and melting your grease and that is what is running out.

Are you sure it is oil and not grease?
